Poetry & Memoir: The Personal Meets the Political

  • Oberlin Public Library 65 S Main Street Oberlin, OH, 44074 (map)

Join Lynn Powell and Mimi Schwartz, two prize winning writers reading essays and poems that explore the ways individual experience reflects and/or challenges history’s official story - be it on immigration, the women’s movement, or conflicting ideologies.

Lynn Powell’s new book of poems, Season of the Second Thought, won the 2017 Felix Pollak Prize from the University of Wisconsin Press. She teaches at Oberlin College and directs the Writers-in-the-Schools program.

Mimi Schwartz is Professor Emerita at Richard Stockton University and the author of seven books; most recently, When History is Personal.
